“After Work”

Yesterday I popped up to Switzerland to take some photos for a friend. Others might call it work, I call it fun … I love looking for the art in electrical reticulation systems …

But I digress. At the end of the day, after photographing who knows how many DB boards, power networks, substations and transformers, and having forgotten about lunch completely, we went out for a beer and some snacks to La Fumisterie Chez Ernest Restaurant in Rue des Noirettes, Geneva.

How fortunate that we arrived while they were serving their speciality antipasti. The beer was cold, the vibe warm and all the waiters un-like typical French waiters (that is to say, they were all most friendly).

La Fumisterie‘s catchphrase is “Food & Flavours of the Mediterranean”. They make great saucisson in-house and I can highly recommend their other cold meats.

That was pretty much my experience of Geneva – basements and La Fumisterie … (Oh, and being stuck in traffic). I’m sorry, I’ll try a little harder next time to bring you all something a bit more interesting.

  1. While they are all most excellent, the one with the wine glass in the foreground and the one of the cocktail shadow are my favorites. It’s Friday!! But Lord help me, it’s only 8am. šŸ™‚
